    I’ve seen the “G” prefix noted when people are discussing their Remington 700 actions but rarely see any other prefixes mentioned. Is the “G” series special? If so, why? Thanks

    Gunsmithing Rechamber 6.5x47 to 6.5 Creedmoor?

    I’ve got a 6.5x47 Lapua barrel that I’m thinking about having rechambered given the factory ammo offerings. Can any competent gunsmith do this? Is there a downside to rechambering? Would it be better performance wise to have a Creedmoor barrel spun up? What say the hide?

    Anyone have real world experience with these on a semi-auto? I’m not expecting unbelievable performance, but for the price point to put on an SBR host it seems tempting.

Anyone...

    Hunting & Fishing 143 eld x

    There was an old thread on Scout regarding the efficacy of the ELD-X and I wanted to revive it here. Last year I bought a GAP 6.5 SAUM and had Copper Creek load up some of these.
